Absolutley! This is the best way to capture "feel" and such things that only 
live recordings can offer.

Yes, you need a sound card with multiple inputs; Dleta 1010, RME Hammerfall, 
Echo layla, etc. These all will show the multiple inputs and outputs in jack 
and thuis will be assignable in Ardour.
